The Arc de Triomphe stands at the end of the avenue des Champs Elysées at place Étoile – the huge roundabout where 12 tree-lined avenues converge. If you’re into extreme sports you may want to rent a car and take it for a spin around the Arc de Triomphe just to test yourself against Parisian traffic (bear in mind that many travel insurance policies specifically state that you will not be covered if you have an accident on the Étoile roundabout). Napoléon commissioned the arch in 1806, 30 years later it was finished and ready for tourists to gawk at. The best access if from the underground passage on the northern side of avenue des Champs Elysées. You get a pretty good view from the top.

    Didn't realise that this thing is actually a roundabout. For a perfect photo, wait until it clear from vehicles.

    Hemen dibine giriş parayla. Dışarıdan fotoğraf çektirmek istiyorsanız, üşenmeyin arka tarafına geçin. Genelde turistler ön tarafta çekildiği için hep kalabalık oluyor. Arka taraf oldukça sakin ;)

    286 steps to reach the top and will cost 9 euros. No elevator but the view is more than worth it

    Driving around this thing at midnight is definitely not for amateurs - leave it to the pros!

    Em uma das pontas da avenida principal de Paris o marco tem que ser visitado. Reserve dois períodos, manhã e noite para registrar momentos.

    Watch out for the young gypsy girls asking for donations. They pick pocketed my iPhone.

    See the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I and pay your respects to those inscribed names who fought in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. Stands on Place Charles de Gaulle.

    Merdivenler dar yüksek çıkmak netameli ancak merdivenlerin sonundaki bank bir vaha gibi ;)

    If you can't manage the steps then there is a lift that takes you most of the way (to the gallery floor). The lift is located opposite the steps exit. Then there are about 40 more steps to the roof.

    Impressive monument to visit (quickly) but one need to go underground to reach it ant it's by feet only.
